Meal Replacement Shake vs Protein Shake
A lot people assume meal replacement shakes and protein shakes are one and the same, but they are not they are two totally different products with different goals. Meal replacement shakes contain many of the essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and carbohydrates your body needs to function, but without the disproportionate amount of sugars and carbohydrates that are common in a normal meal. Replacement meals like shakes are exactly as the name implies, they are replacement meals.
